After notifying shippers Tuesday that one might become necessary due to forecasts of hot Florida temperatures, Florida Gas Transmission (FGT) issued an Overage Alert Day for market-area customers Wednesday. FGT set a 20% tolerance for negative daily imbalances.

Sea Robin Pipeline reported that due to unscheduled maintenance, the Hess Corp.-operated Sea Robin Gas Processing Plant is not processing but is continuing dehydration operations.

As a result of unplanned repairs on Transco's eight-inch diameter Live Oak Lateral in Vermilion Parish, LA, the Henry Live Oak and Live Oak Sinclair receipt points are unavailable until further notice. The impacted production is normally less than 1 MMcf/d, Transco said Wednesday.

Nicor Gas plans to install several new mainline valves on its 22-inch diameter line between the Illinois communities of Galena and Elgin during May. The project will require three segments to be taken out of service at different times, Nicor said. Work on the first segment is currently expected to take place in the week of May 9, and Nicor anticipates that receipts from Northern Natural Gas to Galena over the required three-day construction period will be reduced to zero. Installations in the second segment are planned for the week of May 16, during which receipts are expected to be limited to about 5,000 MMBtu/d for three days. Work on the last segment is scheduled for the week of May 23, Nicor said, with receipts expected to be limited to about 25,000 MMBtu/d for three days. None of the work will result in delivery service interruptions, LDC spokesman Richard Caragol said.

Southern Star Central said Tuesday its Elk City Firm Storage Expansion became operational April 1, increasing deliverability by 40,000 Dth/d and storage capacity by 4 million Dth. The expanded capacity and deliverability are fully subscribed, the pipeline said, adding that it currently operates a total of 47 Bcf in storage capacity.
